Reta, As you may have heard, the church was burned Saturday morning by an arsonist that they have in custody. I will e-mail directions to you. Phil

Phil,
Received the directions just fine. Thank You

I heard about the Church late last night - said it was thought to be arson. Such a sad, sad thing ! I'm glad to hear they have a suspect.
Only wish I had a picture of it.

Thanks again Phil,
Reta

Hi Reta,
You can find a picture of the church as it looked before the fire on the Hopkins County folklore page and the article titled " Graveyard Cleanin' Off and Dinner on the ground". I am also saddened with the loss of the church, all of my dads family are buried in the cemetary.
Question, my great grandmother was Sarah Young who married John Henry Williams (both are buried there) is she part of your Young family?
Best Regards J. D.

Hi J.D.,
Thanks for the help. I now have it saved in my files.

As for your Sarah Young... I can't find a connection. I have 2 Sarah's with no husband listed for them... BUT - I have around 50 Hankins listed in my data if you would care to see if we have a connection with them.

A lot of my Howton's are at Lafayette & I plan on visiting the cemetery while I'm there in Sept.
Thanks again,
Reta
